Great piece of history
Five stars, even though the audio is not the best, but, consider it was 1951 and the networks and radio stations didn't have the foresight to record it. Most have heard the Russ Hodges call, but very few have ever heard the Dodgers' Red Barber describe the winning three-run round-tripper. The Gordon McLendon call comes from the only surviving recording of the complete broadcast, over the fledgling Liberty Network.
